Pls help with Fuji S700 photo download sort of solved

Postby gwohlgeschaffen on Fri Sep 26, 2008 9:22 pm

We just switched from Windows XP to Linux Mint. I tried connecting my Fuji S700 camera to the pc via the USB port to download the pictures and videos. The camera was detected, but the pictures could not be accessed. I searched the web and found this "patch." How do I use this patch information to make the pc download my photos? THANKS

Well, what you post is no patch but lsusb -v
Can't you navigate to the photos with the file browser?
You might need a program for this purpose like f-spot

The device manager recognizes when the camera is connected to the USB port and powered on or off. I opened F-Spot and tried importing the pictures, but received the error message, "Received error, 'Could not claim the USB device' while connecting to camera." Then all I can do is hit the "OK" button to dismiss the message. Do I have to edit any lines in the device manager to specify the model of the camera?

The device manager shows a camera icon in the Devices pane with "USB imaging interface" beside it. When I click on that and then click the USB tab in the right-hand pane, the info is:
USB Version: 2.0
Bandwidth: 12.0 Mbit/s
Power Usage: 0 mA
Vendor: Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd
Product: USB Imaging Interface
Revision: 1.0

Do I dare try editing any of the Keys under the "Advanced" tab in the right-hand pane of Device Manager?

This is the only problem I have encountered. I have my Palm being backed up just fine, and the USB ports are working great for USB insertable drives. Any help would be fantastic, as I'm not sure how to use that information that I posted erroneously as a patch!

Thanks for responding, by the way. I do appreciate it.

I saw something about this just recently while looking for a solution for something else
I just can't remember what and where. I'll mark this and come back to you - unfortunately it may take a couple of days
I am surprised that you can't navigate to the camera with the file browser.
One solution that suddenly came to mind is to install testdisk (from Synaptic)
It includes photorec that does a great job in retrieving all kinds of files. It can manage even if the file system is damaged, so it may be capable of retrieving your photos

THANKS 900i, BUT STILL DOESN'T WORK. THE LINK SAYS TO DO
THE FOLLOWING
*********************************************************
ISSUE COMMAND: sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libgphoto2.rules
OUTPUT IS THIS:
# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (udev < 0.98
#
BUS!="usb*", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

CHANGE THE 3RD LINE ENTRY TO THE AMENDED 3RD LINE ENTRY BELOW:
# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (udev < 0.98
#
SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

SAVE THE EDITED FILE. RELOAD DRIVERS BY ENTERING COMMAND:
sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
******************************************************************
MY ORIGINAL FILE 45-libgphoto.2.rules LOOKED LIKE THIS:
******************************************************************
# udev rules file for libgphoto2
#
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
BUS!="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

LABEL="libgphoto2_rules_real"
*******************************************************************
HERE ARE THE EDITED VERSIONS THAT I TRIED.

TEST 1. PUT '!' AFTER 'SUBSYSTEM'
*******************************************************************
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
BUS!="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
*******************************************************************

TEST 2. MOVE 'ACTION' TOWARD END OF SCRIPT
*******************************************************************
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
BUS!="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
*******************************************************************

TEST 3. DELETE THE 'BUS!' LINE
*******************************************************************
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
*******************************************************************

TEST 4. FINALLY, DELETE 'SUBSYSTEM!=="usb", ' LINE
SO FINALLY THE FILE LOOKS LIKE THIS
*******************************************************************
# udev rules file for libgphoto2
#
SUBSYSTEM!=="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_real"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

LABEL="libgphoto2_rules_real"
*******************************************************************

I EXECUTED THE COMMAND sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
AFTER EACH NEW FILE VERSION WAS SAVED, BUT
NONE OF THE ABOVE WORKED. COULD IT BE THAT THIS PARTICULAR
CAMERA WAS ONLY DESIGNED TO WORK WITH WINDOWS? I NOTICE THAT
THE FUJI CUSTOMER SERVICE SITE HAS NEW FIRMWARE FOR WINDOWS AND
MAC BUT NOTHING FOR LINUX. SUGGESTIONS PLEASE?

# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (for udev 0.98 version)
# Created from this library:
# libgphoto2 2.4.0 gcc, ltdl, EXIF
# libgphoto2_port 0.8.0 gcc, ltdl, USB, serial without locking
#
SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

Thats what mine looks like under Mint 4 Daryna

may be of some help. You seem to have 1 too many = sign after SUBSYSTEM!

I removed the extra '=' signs as per 900i's suggestion. Still not working... and I'm still trying.
You all have been great with all your advice. Please keep it coming when you have the time.
Thanks.

I've found a bit about your camera. It is a PTP camera* and
PTP cameras cannot be mounted like a hard disk, you have to use libgphoto (usually a frontend like gthumb, F-spot, or Kamera) to talk to it. Only cameras which provide an 'USB mass storage' interface can be mounted.

This is according to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/126733
* You can find that out from http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digita ... index.html but you can of course not use the drivers on that page
So it seems you have to test a few applications .....

Fuji S700 is PTP

Postby gwohlgeschaffen on Mon Oct 13, 2008 1:09 pm

Thanks, Husse. Having read the info in the links you found, I realize that I have tried F-spot Photo Manager. The files cannot be imported by it. I called Fuji tech support and they said the only way to download the images is to use a card reader. So what I have done is partitioned the hard drive to run Windows XP to download the images, and then use them in Linux Mint. That'll do for now. Thanks to all of you for your helpful suggestions in this matter. I've learned about using the terminal application and command line through this exercise. :)
